Most modern applications consist of two types of workloads: microservices for the business logic, today usually deployed in containers, and multiple third party data services to transport, analyze, and store data. The major cloud providers offer proprietary managed services for these components, but for deployments that need to run on a mix of cloud, datacenter and edge locations they aren’t an option. Some of the most popular open source tools for these components are Kubernetes, Apache Kafka, Spark and Cassandra, but managing them yourself requires deep knowledge of each technology.

In this talk, Tobi Knaup will demo how System Administrators can use Mesosphere DC/OS to deliver these open source technologies “as-a-Service” on any cloud, datacenter or edge location with a high level of automation, while maintaining architectural control.



Tobi Knaup was one of the first engineers and tech lead at Airbnb where he wrote large parts of the infrastructure, scaled the site to millions of
users, and built a world class engineering team. He is currently CTO and co-founder of Mesosphere.


Our meetings are scheduled for 7:30pm on the third Thursday of each month.
